. >> ron alan live in cairo, egypt. just over an hour from now, president obama is expected to field questions about reports that his administration is working to broker a deal to remove president mubarak from power. several reports say the white house and egyptian officials are discussing a plan that would remove mubarak immediately while leaving newly-appointed vice president omar suleiman to take t reins in a back shift of power. mike, what else are you hearing regarding this q&a session with the president? and also the president will probably get questions on the finger pointing. many are questioning why the intelligence was not there to perhaps predict or lead us to know more about what was apparently around the corner with these protests. >> reporter: that's right. one of the top cia officials yesterday appeared before a senate committee hearing and got a grilling, why they weren't paying closer attention in the view of some senators like ron wyden and diane feinstein, two democrats, why they did not pay closer attention to social media. that was driving the organizational eff

, policy priorities, have been completely upset by this development. the obama administration came into office two years ago planning to work on israeli- palestinian peace, planning to engage with iran to try to prevent the emergence of iran as a nuclear power and frankly, it had no interest in what it saw as the failed freedom agenda of george bush. what we now see is that these demands for change in the region for democratic governments in the region have forced a's selves onto obama a agenda. he has chosen wisely to get on the right side of this and to be in favor of the spread of democracy and human rights in the region. i think the administration is playing catch up. they are trying very much to show they were on top of these issues all along and were in favor of these things all along, but to be honest, there was not much attention and much priority given to these issues to what was happening inside arab countries and change that might be coming from inside arab countries. there was not much attention given to that at all. over the last couple of years. the two other issues t

the president. i was traveling with him yesterday to marquette, michigan. late into the evening president obama when he returned to the white house was in meetings with his national security team. you look at yesterday afternoon when president obama was speaking to the crowd in marquette, michigan. he seemed quite hopeful that president mubarak would go quite a bit further than he actually did. president obama saying to the crowd there that we are witnessing history unfold and this is a moment of transformation. by the evening a decidedly different tone and lengthy statement the president put out. almost a point by point almost rebuttal to president mubarak's message. i'll read you a portion of it that the president put out. president obama saying too many egyptians remain unconvinced that the government is serious about a genuine transition to democracy and responsibility of the government to speak clearly to the egyptian people and the world. president obama goes on to say the egyptian government must put forward a credible, concrete and unekwif cal path and they have not yet seized that oppo

in this place. >> reporter: the obama administration is reportedly talking with egyptian officials about ways to resolve the crisis. their discussions are said to include having mubarak step down now, instead of when his term expires in september. secretary of state hillary clinton condemned the violence thursday, and called for a smooth political transition. >> the egyptian people expect a meaningful process that yields concrete changes. >> reporter: u.s. lawmakers also turned up the pressure. >> stop the blood-letting, let's start a peaceful transition to a free and open society. >> reporter: but on the streets of cairo, few are listening to calls from the outside world. focused, instead, on the battles pitting egyptian against egyptian for the future of their country. and in washington, the debate between democrats and republicans on this issue is somewhat muted. that's because they both view egypt as an ally in the middle east. they also want democracy for the country. but they also are both concerned about the possibility of extremist influence in a post-mubarak government. terrell? >> i
